I'm new to this site and fairly new to the sport. My background is usually more towards to quad and dirt bike racing, but with my first ride at Brown County State Park.. I became addicted to mountain biking..
Can anyone give me advice on what to look for when it comes to shopping for a bike? During my last ride, I noticed there was a few people on full suspension bikes.. Do they offer a huge difference as compared to a hardtail? I'm guessing it depends on what type of terrain you're planning to ride. But for me, most of my riding is at Brown County, Town Run or Rangeline.. Any takers??

All of the above, plus Pine Loop and Limekiln in Brown County. More elevation change, but my girls have been riding them since they were able to ride two wheels.
Every kid is different, but my 8 year old girl had ridden Pine Loop, the North Tower connector, and North Tower, and Limekiln in Brown County, most of the Fort Harison trails, and Mann Loop at Southwestway.
She's definitely more adventurous than most 8 year old girls though.

Panting Deer Enduro Series Update! Valley Branch downhills #2 and #3 are clear and fast and begging for tires. We are clearing and prepping trails, returning them to their glory days condition. Come out and shred your legs on the steep climbs, then rip up the downhills at Valley Branch Retreat in Brown County. Afterward, relax with a zip line tour. As an incentive, this weekend we will drop off a list of 'likely routes' for the September 27 enduro. Just mention pantingdeer.com when you sign in at the Harvest Hall.
More news! We have finalized plans with Stoney Lonesome Motorcycle Club for our August 17 enduro that begins and ends at Columbus Youth Camp. Part of that race will pass through Stoney Lonesome. Can you say "naughty and nice"? Strap up your helmet tight, this will be one rugged ride! They don't call it Stoney for nothing. These are some great folks who are looking forward to hosting their motor-less brothers and sisters. More news regarding other private property for this race to come. Please note that Stoney Lonesome is not open for pre-riding, but Columbus Youth Camp is.

I've got a Redline Monocog I bought a few years ago as a knockaround bike/winter commuter and I'm not doing either of those things anymore, so I'd like to sell it to you. It's matte blue. It has 26" wheels. It's a 19" frame. There's a bit of rust on the chain from disuse but plenty of wear left on it. $200. Send me a message and you're welcome to take it for a ride. I'd say it's been ridden for a total of 20 hours or less. Thanks for looking!
I will be there on Thursday as well. If enough people show up, I can put people to work on some new trail.
Yes, the main trail work session will start at noon.
I will likely be setting up work in the morning and can set up anyone who wants to work earlier in the day on projects.

Got a handful of votes tonight on site and hopefully some folks will vote at home tonight. Who would be up for helping next thursday? Should be a bigger group if the weather is good.
